Classic Pio, Penny Saver magazine. Lol.
Is that an industry?
I did an experiment with this years ago. In my experience it made the soles wear faster. Anything that softens the soles will make them wear faster. I no longer do anything to the soles of my shoes.
What industry do you work in?
I think the issue with "manual" espresso machines is the inconsistency if you're not putting a lot of work into it. Also there is a lot of coffee waste. An issue in some places is getting beans that are roasted and blended to produce a good result, then once you do that coffee going stale is an issue. IMO, they are a pain in the ass in the home, too many strikes against them.
I'm always terrified at what I end up tipping after getting wasted at a bar. Is it enough? Did I do the math on the bill correctly? Could they even read it? Feedback from my local favorite is the drunker I am the better I tip by a lot.
I don't experience the drawbacks you mention here. I still think the Nespresso mouthfeel is excellent, I find that most shots I have in coffee shops aside from them being disgustingly acidic they are very thin. The temperature issue can be solved with pulling a shot with no pod in it warming the internals and the cup before pulling a pod loaded shot.
Noted. I have always wanted to get into philosophy, but the amount of works out there by various people is so daunting.
Seems to work well with your style. I'm not a fan of the samurai look, but down it looks cool.
Interesting. You have been mentioning Strauss for years in different contexts. I have always wanted to dive into him more, but I fear without proper education he would be over my head.
